Long Island Boat Ramp Guide
A Guide to Launching in the Marine Waters of Nassau and Suffolk Counties
Do you trailer and launch your boat on Long Island?
If you trailer a boat on Long Island and are looking for new areas to launch, DEC has assembled a listing of boat ramps located in Nassau and Suffolk Counties for your reference. The facilities are separated by town.
The guides provide information on ramp location, description, jurisdiction, contact number, adjacent body of water, parking and any additional amenities (e.g. pumpout, washdown, rest rooms, dock). Note that most ramps require a seasonal permit or a day use fee. There may also be vessel size restrictions depending on the facility. Ramps maintained by NYSDEC are free for all residents of New York State. For the most current information regarding any particular ramp please call the contact phone number given in the guide.
A town locator map is provided below to help you select the launching area you are interested in. Select the body of water you are interested in and locate the towns that are near the body of water. You can view or print a larger version of this map by clicking the link in the right column (PDF, 445 kB).
